Wrapping a week of non-stop promotion, Rihanna took front stage centre tonight on the The X Factor UK, delivering a show-stopping performance of chart-topping single ‘Diamonds’.
Let’s just say the ‘Unapologetic’ performer turned in a showing she won’t be saying sorry for.
It happened. Rihanna…dare we say…slayed!
Yes, the smoke and mirrors were basically a metaphor for her career, but kudos where they’re due, that was an outstanding performance.
“Shade” as we may, our prime problem with the 24 year old is her position as Pop’s most consistently inconsistent act. Indeed, few can rival her uncanny ability to deliver a solid performance in one breath, only to serve up her worst in the next.
Still, in the here and now, that was a great showing. More of this Rih…please.
